The Division 2 arguably enjoyed the best launch period of a looter shooter this generation, and although things have been a little rocky for Ubisoft's cover-based excursion since, it's still great fun with friends. A detailed, dense open world is the spine of The Division 2, and exploring it as a team can quickly become an addiction -- especially when you're being showered with loot. But it's the story and co-op specific missions that really set the game apart, offering up some fantastic firefights.

Team Sonic Racing is a kart racer that's all about coop. You can team up with your pals either locally or online, and you must all work together to ensure victory. Trailing teammates can use a literal golden path to boost forward, and you can swap power-ups with each other to help everyone get ahead. It's unique, lots of fun, and a smart implementation of co-op in kart racing.
Knights and Bikes can be played solo, but is even better with a buddy in either local or online co-op. Taking on the roles of Nessa and Demelza as they explore the mysterious Penfurzy island, you'll get up to all sorts of mischief. Cooperation comes into play when you need to solve puzzles together, and in combat, your movesets play off of each other in lots of fun ways. An utter delight from start to finish.
Feel free to swap this out for your favourite LEGO game on PS4. Whichever LEGO adventure you play, a big part of what makes them special is co-op. A friend can hop in at any point and take control of a second character, and playing together doubles the fun. Beating up baddies, solving puzzles, and seeing who can collect the most studs in each level -- these plastic platformers are built to be played in a twosome. We challenge you to not have a good time playing co-op in a LEGO game.
There are plenty of ways to play Minecraft, but arguably the most enjoyable way is with a few pals. Working together to mine for resources, build structures, and fend off those pesky creepers can lead to some hilarious outcomes. Playing either locally or online and with endless possibilities, this is one co-op game you can always keep coming back to. And with the Bedrock update now on PS4, cross-play means you'll never be short of people to play with.
